Think, dude: "Why is Riemann famous?"  Think of the constantly repeated 
references to levels.  Get your Dutch cohort to translate the German for you.  
How does Riemann surpass Euclid, especially in regard to topology?  Notice the 
quote from Einstein--think about your point of Historical Madness.  Get someone 
to identify the chess problem for you--could be it is famous.  Then 
conceptually integrate that with the Chaucer quote.  They (the conspirators or 
whatever they may be) are obviously working on a multi-level "tema con 
variazioni" where part of the mathematics would require a cybernetic key--not 
the simplistic Clavis of your friend with the wooden shoes, but that "Clavis" 
could refer to  another level, in another Announcement. The fact that the 
Dutchman picked up on the childishly simplistic "Clavis" still did not lead him 
to draw theninference as to the interlocking quadrants--and whatever else 
appears on a page which is so slapdash that the real meaning is probably 
concealed by the naive simplicity.   [Surprising conceptual omission in someone 
who is giving his life to logic, if we can believe his Webpage.] If you worked 
more on the evolving themes, you might see the point more quickly.  For 
example, what did Winthrop do?  You have the historical facts on Winthrop (a 
few of them) but what he really did was invent an economically viable Body 
Politic--and did it by largely ignoring economics and emphasizing another 
Dimension. Oddly enough neither you nor your bright cohorts have mentioned even 
once the repeated and prominent economic references, some of which are 
disturbingly concrete. [repubgirl has made a stab at one of them, maybe she is 
developing that end and will tell us later.]  At a guess, I doubt that these 
"people" get together and pound brew, socialize and throw up on the table.  
More like they want something bigger.  Final point, if I were as interested as 
the Webmaster, I would try to get straight on why Chemnitz is historically 
important--he did something which made history very diffe!
rent--you might try to figure out what it was.  You might even be able to find 
it on the Web.  Then notice how his name is interwoven with the mathematics of 
boundary situations.  Again your Duthchman remarked on one example--but he did 
not extend it to the modus operandi. These "people" seem to like you, 
Webmaster, so try out a few ideas, especially in conjunction with your cohorts. 
 Maybe the participants will anwer you in some form. Even if you never hear 
from them again, it will have stretched your mind beyond the little boxes we 
all naturally inhabit, until sufficiently stimulated to move off Dead Center.
